Just got back from the 300 mile round trip to MSL & Torqueflow in Birmingham.
Great chaps, very welcoming & knowledgable.
The exhaust was modified first, then they ran a stock power run & it made 525bhp - i thought that was bloody good for a 2012 80,000 mile engine - proves it's been well cared for & serviced on time etc.
Then the map was uploaded & after a few power runs & adjustments we agreed that 625bhp was a healthy & safe figure.
They made me toast it up the road & back a few times to make sure i was happy...jesus, i couldn't stop grinning.. :)
Drove most of the way home in sports mode using the M5/A419/A338 to have some motorway, dual carriageway & twisty A road action - also stopped at a private road & can confirm the acceleration between 80mph & 130mph is frankly alarming..
Met some fellow AMG owners, ate chicken & shot some pool, so all in all it was a good day.
Can't wait to drive to work tomorow morning...:cool::cool:

It is like a great social club where you come out with a much faster and louder car...

I used to travel a few hundred miles to get there but well worth it. Acid, Imran and Co. are great at what they do and splendid hosts!

Makes a difference doesn't it?:banana:
You chose a different route to me coming up from Dorset.

The cold start in the morning is much improved:thumb::thumb:

Glad you're pleased with the results... hopefully makes you love the car for a few years more 😁 it's a pretty epic car with some minor mods.

I could go and talk cars with other customers at MSL every day, worth the trip in itself!

I finally got my res delete done a couple of weeks ago. It really completes the package (until stage 2??)... how it should sound!

That's what I used to do.

It's nice to be able to have a chat with someone and they understand exactly what you are talking about with reference to car modifications etc. without glazing over or not understanding.

Met quite a few peeps there over the time I went there around the middle part of the last decade.

Oh noooooo.... you ate the chicken.....

Last time I did that when I was down there for a remap and resonator delete, I went back within 3 weeks for Long Tube headers and more dyno tuning and then the rest is history. Now mine is supercharged with 2 page list of mods....

The chicken was good....but the results after the map were better.....i won't be going back too soon - the extra power & exhaust tone will keep me happy for a while :rolleyes:

Thanks - my thoughts exactly & to think i was pondering selling it a few months ago...

I went down the same path.

After 3.5 years I was getting bored with my 211 E55.

So I decided to mod it and make it louder.

After some Acid chicken (laced with a drug called BHP), I was persuaded to make it faster and louder.

Glad I did. Immense fun and re-kindled my enjoyment of the car for another 2 years.
